Detroit Urban Studio

Live, Work, Learn & Make in Detroit

Part of the College of Arts and Letters Citizen Scholars Program, the Urban Studio is an innovative ten-week experience that aims to connect, engage, and immerse students in and with the city of Detroit.

While living on the campus of Wayne State University, students will participate in coursework, an internship, and a community-engaged project. 

In doing so, members of the 2017 Urban Studio cohort will investigate the history of Detroit, gain workplace experience, and apply their skills as they transform Detroit City Football Club's Keyworth Stadium into a "community classroom" where community members both teach and learn about the Detroit '67 uprising. 

Urban Studio coursework includes an IAH course that is registered as an Option Course in the Citizen Scholar Program. 

Dates: June 5 - August 9, 2017

Information Sessions: March 13th & 21st at 5pm in 224 Ernst Bessey Hall.

Housing: While in Detroit, students will be housed on Wayne State University's campus. 

Estimated Program Fee: TBD.
